I gave this game another shot, because why not, it’s free.
So, long range guns seem really awful. Like, every time I try to use a sniper rifle, it’s just an exercise in frustration.
However, abandoning that, I changed the way I played, and things were better.
One thing that is worth noting, is that use of skills seems way more crucial than a game like Destiny. They recharge fast, and are much more powerful.
I was playing my trickster, and I hadn’t previously noticed how fast the skills recharge. Specifically, the teleport skill. So last night, I started using that skill a LOT more.
This made things pretty cool and novel. If some dude is sniping at you from a roof? Screw trying to shoot back at him… just teleport up to him and blow him up with a shotgun at point blank range. This definitely changed the way the game was played.
I still don’t know whether I like this game or not… But I’ll keep trying it for a bit more.
Oh, I also found how to turn off the incredibad camera shake during cutscenes. I honestly don’t know what they were thinking with that “feature”.
